As part of the Department for Transport’s Covid-19 Emergency Active Travel Fund, we have been awarded funding for a series of works to encourage and support walking and cycling throughout the county.

Work begins on the first round of active travel initiatives on Wednesday 22 July 2020. These works are temporary measures and will be closely monitored, this information will be assessed to inform us on future permanent measures.

Following the temporary trial period for a number of schemes, we are now considering the following:

  • Removal of the A6 Loughborough Road, Birstall temporary cycle lane;
  • Retaining the A47 Leicester Forest East cycle lanes;
  • Making the Kettering Road, Market Harborough scheme permanent.

 

Here's more detail of the work which has been undertaken so far.

Please email all questions, advice or guidance requests to: EATF@leics.gov.uk

Birstall

The creation of a temporary cycle corridor on the A6 Loughborough Road in both directions by removing central road markings and narrowing existing traffic islands. The safety of cyclists will be improved by implementing a right turn ban from and including Hermitage Road to Sibson Road.
